Fashion and Appearance in Art from Cave Drawings to Star Wars

Course Description

Using examples of fashion and appearance in fine art, photography and video the course will explore how, from the dawn of history until now, adornment is an important reflection of culture, social class, political beliefs, age, power, etc. The class will discuss how specific aspects of appearance, such as clothing styles and accessories, identify and mirror societal shifts, economics, wars, gender/sex roles, racism and other cultural phenomena. By the end of the course participants should understand the complex relationship between human appearance and the world in which they live.
